  • I've not seen many posts on this part of the forum, lets see your DMC-L1s'

    Not many of us DMC-L1 users post up on here but lets see if we can get a few pictures of the cameras up.

    Here's mine in walk about mode with the Olympus 25mm f2.8 pancake lens attached.

    It'll probably be all I take on holiday this year as I'm about to have an operation on my knee this afternoon so will want to be travelling fairly lightly.

    Unfortunately L1s are quite rare. But I'd like to see more results from the L1 and the Leica version!

      Its a great camera, but I'm a little torn as I inherited it from my Father along with another 150 or so cameras! It was the only digital camera he had though.

      Its a fantastic camera during daylight but at night I can't see a thing through the viewfinder, a flaw with the poro prism design I believe. I've built up a little collection of lenses and would love to be able to keep them and use them for the future.

        I also have an L1 body, a nice combo with 25mm f1.4 and 10-20 sigma.
        It lacks megapixels, but they don't rattle my cage particularly, high ISO performance not so good above 400.
        Erganomics are super, everything just where I want it - so easy to use, feels solid (it is) hate the light plasticky feel on most cameras.
        I aslo have the E-3, by far the better camera, but genuinely torn between the two when I have to choose which one to use.
        I have lots of photos from the L1 that I have as screen backgrounds on my PC, and defy anyone to tell what camera they were taken on megapixel wise (Pc has a 24" widescreen monitor).
        Now! while 7.5 mp might not cut the mustard for a pro, its more than enough for a 10 X 20 print.
        It's the subject/composition that counts, not the megapixels.

          I just got my DMC-L1 two weeks ago on E-Bay. It is in great condition. I liked the looks and feel of it.I have an Oly. 510 and all i needed was the body to use with my lenses.

            Here is my very rare red dot version of the L1. Apparently the previous owner liked red dots. Since my first camera was a Leica IIIf I think this is kinda funny, and pro togs often do a double-take when they see it.

            BTW, I really like using the Panasonic Magnifying Eyecup #VYC0973 on it.

            PS: In normal light the blacked-out LUMIX isn't very visible. (The flash made it more obvious than it really is.)

                Thought I would add a couple of mine. Should have gotten the flash out, but I didn't

                'Salright, I think everyone can get the idea!.

                Here is the new one wearing the Leica D 14-150, next to my poor, non-functioning first L1.



                And I might be the only person that has used this lens with the L1







                I am curious about the "red dot" version, what's the story with that? I love my L1, if I get an E-5, I might sell the E-3, but I will never part with the L1.

                  Funnily enough that's about where I stand with my cameras, I would sell the E3 f I had too, but the L1 would not go anywhere!

                  Which lens is that you have on there?

                      Thought it might have been! A bit of a monster isn't it?

                      I thought this 4/3 thing was all about smaller and lighter and a neater way of doing things compared to the Canikon thing going on?

                        True, I have thought the same from time to time. on the plus side, the 35-100 is brighter and sharper for the equivalent from the competition. So while the Nikkor 70-200 f/2.8, for example is around the same size, it is a stop slower. And a stop makes a big difference in size. But the 50-200 is relatively small and light, as is the 70-300.

                          I'm just in the process of buying a 50-200 for my lens collection, I don't think I could get away with spending the sort of money the 35-100 costs at the moment!

                          The SWD version second hand, costs a third more than a non swd version does, so for the moment I'm going none SWD.

                            Yeah, I shouldn't have bought it, but I had used a rental copy, and it is truly an amazing lens. Makes me want to go out and shoot with it. A also got it second hand, so that helped to ease the blow just a little

                              I sold the E-510 last month and now have an E-30 and a 14-54 lens. I still use my DMC L1. I will not part with it. I have the 25mm pancake on it most of the time.Would love to pick up a 50-200 but will have to stick with my 70-300 for now.
